Temp Taskbar for Windows 7

NOTE: This project has been abandoned, so no more updates :(

Same thing as my RAM CPU Taskbar, but for temperature! CURRENTLY INCOMPATIBLE WITH IT! I'll probably compile them into one tool later though.

Enjoy, comment, :+fav:, and :points:!

If you don't want to spend, then just click one (or all!) of the links below, wait 5 seconds and click skip ad. It doesn't take long!

Simple temperature monitor for the Windows 7 taskbar. Doesn't take up any space. Same thing as my RAM CPU Taskbar, but for temperature. My friend wanted it, and I didn't plan to release it, but I didn't really care, and so here it is.

Version Info:
v1.1 - Fixed Run As Administrator bug
v1.0 - Initial release

Working things:
Colour changer
All resolutions
Different heights/widths for the taskbar
Hides from aero-peek
All positioned taskbars

Not working things:
Resists show desktop

Created by Wasteland Studios.
Works best with AeroPlain theme, as used in the preview.

I wish this was still supported, this was EXACTLY what I was looking for!
Doesn't work on my Intel i7-3960x 6-core :(

Try installing rivatuner, I think it adds something to the system which allows my program to access temperature values. My desktop (Intel Core Quad) doesn't work with this program till I run rivatuner (and I don't know why D:)

I'm gonna be updating this in a moment, do you mind if you can test out the new version?
I have Windows 7 x64 HP with an Intel Pentium B950. Do you have any plans to add support for this processor?
anonymous-thing's avatar
No, I'm not updating this project anymore (I think I don't even have the original source anymore). However, if it's giving an unsupported error, try installing Rivatuner or some other program that can monitor temperature - I've found that some other temperature programs actually install a driver or something that allows Temp Taskbar to function (for example, Temp Taskbar doesn't work on my desktop until I install Rivatuner).

Windows 7 x64, AMD Phenom X6 1100T, Asus Crosshair V - UNSUPPORTED.

And it definitely works on x64 Windows 7, as I have it. Not sure about your proc or mb though.
anonymous-thing's avatar
What happens? An error? Or just doesn't update or something?

Very nice ans useful tool!

What program and language do you use to make your tools?
I create applications too, check in my gallery -> [link] (games) and [link] (utilities)

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

< jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

First, there should be some text ABOVE the textbox with this error. I bet it says "Not supported".
This is because in the FIRST LINE OF THE EXCEPTION: "System.Management.ManagementException: Not supported"

Please read.

Nice work! Will be featured on GUIFlaunt :)

As a future feature, wouldn't it be nice if one was able to customize the temperature source (for instance, in HWMonitor, there is also GPU core temperature, ACPI Zones, HDD temperatures...) ? Just wondering.

Otherwise, very nice idea. :)
anonymous-thing's avatar
I'm gonna do that later :P good idea, totally forgot about that.. I'm just in the middle of my IOP until Tuesday. (Google it if you don't know what that is)
javierl93's avatar
its change all my windows bar colour could you delete that function or make a button for diseable it! thanks!
anonymous-thing's avatar
um... if you're talking about the actual personlization colour, my app does nothing like that. It just displays a progress bar UNDER the taskbar, and doesn't even access the taskbar. If you're just talking about the visual colour, then that's the entire point of my program.
javierl93's avatar
using it! thanks a lot!
Nice Tool.
This temperature is CPU? or HDD?
anonymous-thing's avatar
Average CPU temperature (so for all cores)
